You seem to know what the FireStore is for, but not what the DeckLink is for. The DeckLink enables you to capture from high-quality tape sources and to accurately monitor the image. You don't want to — and currently don't have the option to, seen as the DVX doesn't have SDI outputs — capture over SDI.

If you anticipate working with DigiBeta or HDCam, or wanting to accurately grade your footage some time soon, then the DeckLink is worth hanging on to. If you don't, you'd probably be better off with the FireStore.

But before you rush out and buy that, it might be worth having a proper think as to whether you really need either...
